Thomas & Lucia is run by husband and wife team Sue & Matthew. Sue is a qualified garden designer and horticulturist. She has run a successful garden development and maintenance business to private homes in Dorset and Hampshire. And while Matthew started out at Wimbledon Art College he worked as a self employed IT Consultant for over 25 years. In 2007 they decided to make a significant change of direction and work together, pool their respective talents and open a high street shop in Christchurch Dorset. It is from there we run and supply our online shop.
Thomas and Lucia is named after co-owner Sue's great, great, great grandparents. Thomas was a miller in Shropshire Lucia, his wife, was named after her Italian grandmother. The opening of our shop in June 2008 produced a significant ripple in the area and we have had many lovely and positive comments from our customers ever since.
